    Tried to view downloaded movies while flying using Apple TV icon and could not access them. Message popped up that I was not connected to the internet. With the old "Video" icon that I had before TV, I could watch all downloaded iTune movies without the internet. On a business trip now and can't seem to find a standard player to watch the downloaded movies I purchased from iTunes. Thanks for reading this.

    Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately, this only works with a wifi connection. Without wifi, like on a plane, all I get is an error that that app is not available.

    VLC Player and Readdle's Documents are worth looking at. You'll need the movies as files.

    Thank you - I will look at this. I have discovered that if you keep the TV app open while on a wifi connection, you can later access your downloaded movies without a wifi connection. However, if you close the tv app you cannot reopen it until you have a wifi connection again.

    Apple needs to fix TV or make the old "Video" app available as a download.
